Lone Star Arabian Horse Banquet
AS you may or may not know, I show Arabian horses. I love having horses as pets and being abler to show them is just so fun and awarding to me. I am in a local Arabian horse club and at the end of the year they have an awards ceremony. I was called one day in December asking what size jacket I would want if I were to buy one. I was slightly confused but then realized I must be winnign something.
Well, our morning hadn’t gone as we had expected and with Brandon hurting his eye, my mom was my date and support for the banquet. I knew they were awarding top 5, so I figured maybe 4th or even 3rd at best. When those places got called and then 2nd place got called without mentioning my name, I started to kinda freak out. I was thinking either the phone call was a mistake or holy crap, I just won champion in my age division. With my heart racing, they sure enough called my name as champion for the 19-39 age group. I was shocked and super excited. I was so happy my trainer and her husband were able to attend to and enjoy in this excitement! I was also a little bummed that my poor hurt husband missed out, because he was a HUGE impact, support and help throughout every show, practice, training session and watching the kids while I rode.
I still have a long ways to go and a lot of work to do with our horses but I couldn’t be prouder. With our horse who passed away, Cash and our new horse June, they were the ones who made this possible for me. Oh how horses change your life!
